The Living Bible (TLB)

“But Jesus told him, ‘No! For the Scriptures tell us that bread won’t feed men’s souls: obedience to every word of God is what we need.'”

Live The Word

This is an awesome verse. We are to live by ‘every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Not just a verse here and there. But all that Christ has commanded us, we are to live by that Word. Our own words are part of our witness. But when our walk matches our words, and all this is in accord, that is when we start to Live by the Word. I love to say ‘Live The Word’. Don’t just say it, but live it.
